Baby feeding isn't usually something I discuss.. and that's not because I'm embarrassed, feel guilty or ashamed.. it's because I simply don't really have much of an opinion on the subject. After all, all it really is is a choice made by a Mother about how to feed her child. Nothing less, nothing more. It shouldn't be a debate, it shouldn't be a clash of opinions between mothers/parents/the media or anyone else. How a Mother chooses to feed her child is up to her, it's her business and her business alone.
I never breastfed Ethan, but I can imagine that breastfeeding is bloody tough and so if a woman chooses to share a photograph of her breastfeeding her child on the internet or anywhere else, then good on her. I'm all for sharing things that make people feed good about themselves. Hence why I blog. I never felt guilty about the way I chose to feed Ethan, why would I have? He's a happy, healthy, little boy and that's all that's ever mattered. I was never pressured to feed him any particular way and if someone had ever tried to pressure me, I would have firmly (but politely) told them that thanks but that they're opinion wasn't welcome.
